At his year’s Rock And Shock Convention I came across a skillfully designed display of a graphic novel. The story is a no holds barred alternative interpretation of the classic tale of the resurrection of Jesus. (He is back and he is MAD AS HELL!)
I got my copy signed my the writer and creator Sam Miserendino, His passion for his art is genuine and I recommend this graphic novel to anyone who loves HORROR and GRAPHIC NOVELS.
If you have not made the leap into your first graphic novel yet and you love horror this is the graphic novel I suggest you start with. -Shawn D. Petrie (August Will Decay)
“Prince of Pieces, a graphic novel by Sam Miserendino, takes a dark, satirical look at the return of Jesus.” -Sam Miserendino

“So, Jesus had a pretty rough go of it. Begat by Mary and the Holy Spirit, he suffered and died for the people who killed him, allowing people into the kingdom of Heaven. And, what do we reward this sacrifice with? The world is . . . pretty awful in certain places, and sometimes in the very churches built-in his name. So, what if Jesus . . . got fed up? That’s the idea behind Creator’s Edge’s release, Prince of Pieces. Jesus comes back with a vengeance…” READ MORE
Review By: Erik Cheski, Fanboy Comics Contributor
“For two thousand years Christians and those who claim to be Christians have be transubstantiating wine and bread into the body and blood of Jesus. Consuming his flesh in order to secure a place for themselves in the kingdom of heaven. But, what if over the course of two thousand years, Jesus was sick of having his body and blood treated as some kind of gateway into the afterlife.
What if he’d suffered enough and wanted to come back for his vengeance. That is exactly the premise of Prince of Pieces, an original graphic novel written by Sam Miserendino, and drawn by Colin Blanton, published by Creator’s Edge Press…”READ MORE
“For two thousand years, we’ve been eating His flesh and drinking His blood…now it’s His turn” is just one of the lines in Prince of Pieces that made me stop and laugh out loud. This text comes at you like a marvelously effective 70s horror flick, full of groaners and knowing eye-rolls.
It is a colorful, satirical romp that is sure to cause sputtering and gasping in anyone who is put off by the idea of a little blasphemy…” READ MORE
Review by: Carolyn Marcille
“Prince of Pieces isn’t a book for the overly sensitive, or dedicated bible-thumper. In fact, those who fall into either category are probably going to declare author Sam Miserendino the second coming of Satan himself. And that’s alright, because the truth is, that’s kind of the effect Sam is going for.
He wrote this – I would wager – with two separate agendas in mind. First, there’s no doubt he aimed to poke fun at those who fall under the spell of the religious swindler, and second he seems to have set out to blatantly offend those who invest every ounce of their being in a deity that we can neither see, nor physically feel…” READ MORE
“If I started a review with a fanboy like, enthusiastic outbreak such as “OMG YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS. IT IS AWESOME”, it would make me appear as an immature, unprofessional jackass. With that being said, “Prince of Pieces” makes me say “OMG YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS. IT IS AWESOME”.
Written and created by Sam Miserendino and with art from Colin Blanton, “Prince of Pieces” is about Jesus. Yes, THAT Jesus. But he’s pissed off at the hypocrisy his name stands for and he’s not taking it any longer…” READ MORE
Review By: DAVE
“Never have I ever experienced suspense, a serious amount of anger, and the urge to vomit at different points in the span of minutes while reading one comic book. And Prince of Pieces has certainly managed to accomplish that. Those that have likely already read this know full well what I’m talking about too.
Creator’s Edge is known for doing some pretty crazy stuff, but good Lord does this take the freaking cake here. Colin knows how to create some real creepy and outright disgusting characters that all fit perfectly in this book. People you know right off the bat you can’t trust at all. His colors help a lot in that too.
This book takes a crack at pervy preachers, preachers that are seemingly in it for the money, the saps who buy into it, and horny teenagers.
And it does that crack really well too, even while Jesus is out and about doing horrible things to people. Sam seriously must have reached into some deep part of him that was screwed up with equally screwed up views on Christianity to deliver the story we see here…” READ MORE
Review By: Rob Wrecks
“…in the comic book Prince of Pieces, an irate Jesus comes back to punish people by turning them into pillars of salt and eating their flesh, beef jerky-style. As one character says, “For 2000 years we’ve been eating His flesh and drinking His blood. Now, it’s His turn.”
There’s even an Uncyclopedia entry detailing what Zombie Jesus said unto the masses: “Braaaiiins … braaaiiinnnss … braaaaiinss!” It also includes the killer line, “He died for your sins. Now he’s back for your brains…” READ MORE
